The only thing wrong here is at the start of the film it seemed like to be rather choppy.Thefilm changed scenes so rapidly it was confusing. The sound was good,the story was good. I did like the movie as a whole even though I finally got over my initial confusion.

When I saw this film posted today, I was sure it was something I've had in my collection for sometime and it was. If this is based on a true story, when it was made an awful lot of the dialogue had the unspoken line "and you know what that means.", as all the more more sordid doings were only alluded to and not shown. If made today, given how everything is shown, the new version would probably get a hard "R" in more ways than one. I digress.
Having said that, this a fine little connect the dots mystery. Conway Tearle is a fine stolid policeman and the entire supporting cast is also very good, understated even. For a "B" movie this little film had better than average production values and superior sound which was a hallmark of Chesterfield films as a rule.. The ending may have younger people raised on CD's, cassettes etc. heading to Wikipedia for the definition of the murder weapon. The film is 81 years old, but still a good way to pass an afternoon.
